Synopsis by Dan Pavlides
Jerzy Stuhr portrays Ludwik Danielak, an out-of-work television personality trying for a comeback by producing a new program. The show will star Zbignew Tataj (Mieczyslaw Frankaszek), who is scheduled to meet the public with a national promotional tour. The star becomes disillusioned when he is forced to read a prepared speech to the fans and is not allowed to deviate from the text. The surprised Stuhr is left alone when Tataj becomes disgusted and walks off the stage in the middle of a program. This feature won the top prize at the 1987 Moscow Film Festival.
